Learning and Growing Together

We have a focus on attendance this half term, asking parents and children to help us with our Attendance Challenge – look at our Attendance page to see how we are doing…

 

 

 

Celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee before the end of the first half of the Summer term, the children sang the National Anthem, planted 3 trees, sang one of the Queen’s top 10 songs and then enjoyed a ‘street party’ with parents. Children had also composed poems with local poet, Peter Roe, during the week, and these will be displayed at the village hall during the village’s celebrations.

Head over to our Science curriculum page to see the wonderful week we had for Science Week!.

Our Science week ‘Designer Flower Competition’ winners – congratulations!

Broadwindsor village community came together on Tuesday 15th March to commemorate The Lost Pilot – a Belgian pilot who fatally crashed his aircraft into the side of Lewesdon Hill in 1942. A memorial was unveiled in his honour in the woodland. Our Year 5/6 pupils read poems they had written, and words were spoken by his great niece, Benjamine, together with a representative from the National Trust and Andrew Frampton, local farmer who uncovered this story whilst isolating with Covid. The poems can be read on our history or english pages.

Broadwindsor Church of England V.C. Primary School is a Christian school which aims to offer the very best learning environment and promote high levels of self-esteem and a lifelong love of learning within an active Christian environment.

At Broadwindsor School we seek to create a happy, family atmosphere within a Christian environment where each adult and child feels secure and has a sense of purpose and responsibility. 

Christian values are part of every aspect of our school curriculum and daily life and are reflected throughout our ethos, aim and objectives.
